A women's college in Northampton, Massachusetts. No other women's college can compare to it; Mount Holyoke College and Wellesley College may disagree, but their indignation is futile. Smith has a reputation for being full of lesbians; in reality it is only half full of lesbians. These lesbians are frequently found playing rugby or participating in crew. A large majority of the straight girls on campus had no idea that there were no men on campus when they applied. Students and alumni of Smith College are referred to as "Smithies," and even if you don't like that when you first come to school, you get used to it. Instead of having freshmen, Smith College has "first-years" to avoid being gender-specific, and one of its class deans is named Tom Riddell, leading many people to believe that Smith is, in fact, Hogwarts.
Just because I go to Smith College, that does not make me a man-hating lesbian. I was one of those regardless.
